If you’ve recently been to our Facebook page, or if you’re signed up for our mailing list, you’re probably already aware of our first-ever AUTHOR FEST! We’re so very excited to be hosting this excellent program for people of all ages. Today we highlight the portion of Author Fest that is specifically set aside for children! David Hyde Costello is the author and illustrator of picture books Little Pig Joins the Band, I Can Help, and Here They Come! (and he is the illustrator of the recently-released A Crow of His Own, by Megan Dowd Lambert), and at 10:50 a.m. he’ll be doing a great presentation for young children featuring an enormous giraffe puppet! We encourage you to arrive by 10:30 a.m. to ensure a parking space in one of the municipal lots nearby. If you have never read his books, we have them on reserve at the Children’s Information Desk. Come take a peek next time you’re in!We invite you to watch our preview video below and also look at the official Author Fest website to find a full schedule of events for Saturday, May 2nd. There will be book signings, storytelling, and of course, lots of advice and expertise from authors of many genres. We look forward to seeing you!
